The mission of the Alzheimer’s Association is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research, while enhancing care and support services for individuals and their families. Their primary goal is to mobilize worldwide resources, set priorities, and fund select projects for biomedical, social, and behavioral research. A second goal is to promote, develop, and disseminate educational programs and training guidelines for health and social service professionals.
The Alzheimer’s Association is invaluable to caregivers in facilitating access to services, information and optimal care techniques to maximize care and support for individuals and their families.
